The True Meaning Of Life

By Pat A. FlemingPublished: July 2017

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

Spring has arrived – and that really can only mean one thing right now. It’s officially time to load up your accessories and jewelry collection! Just because the weather is getting warmer and you’re wearing fewer layers, and clothing overall, that surely doesn’t mean you should be skipping on your accessories.  If you’re looking to be the most stylish version of yourself this spring, Etsy has some epic suggestions of what’s currently in, with of course no shortage of trends that are an absolute blast from the past. What this also means is that you may already have exactly what you need to step in spring into style, if you’ve kept those gems after all those years, of course.  And if you don’t? Well, ouch.

The 2000s specifically seem to be making a comeback, with tracksuits and G-string pants taking over the fashion runways. And when it comes to nostalgic jewelry – it’s expected that belly button rings are going to make a serious comeback too, but with a more modern twist to them.  If you really want to follow the trends this season, the overall suggestion is to not be subtle. People are looking to be ‘extra’ but if you’re into a more minimal look, that’s okay too, and there are other trends that can also fit your style, such a birth flower jewelry – meaning necklaces with your birth month’s flower. These are simple, elegant and trendy. 

 

Crop tops and low-rise jeans are also super in right now, and a little belly decoration never hurt anyone. Don’t worry, tell your mom it’s still much better than getting a full out belly button piercing.  More modern versions of the classic belly ring are a lot more modest than they once were, with a whole lot less bling than there once was…not that we personally would have minded.
